Osteoma are benign osteogenic lesions characterized by proliferation of either cancellous or compact bone and can be central, peripheral or extraskeletal. They may arise in medullary (endosteal) bone or on the bone surface as a polypoid or sessile mass (periosteal). The most common site is in the skull. When affecting the facial bones, they are frequently found in the mandible, the most common locations being the posterior lingual surface and the mandible angle area. Here, a case of osteoid osteoma of the mandible in a 43-year-old female patient is presented with a literature review.
